What you can do is burn Nookie to an sd card, found on this thread: [ADV][DEV][ROM] Nookie Froyo 0.5.9 (01/11) - xda-developers

You can then pop it into any NookColor, rooted or unrooted, and it will boot up pure android 2.2 (with some customization, the dev included Zeam, etc). Power down, pop it out and reboot right back into the stock NookColor home. Don't believe it? Burn it to the sd card, take it to B&N and do it to their demo units and watch their heads explode. No worries, as it does not touch the internal memory at all, its safe.

The reason this works is that NookColor is hardwired to boot off SD if there is a card there that knows how to take it over.

So what does this mean? You are running the operating system right off the sd card and it doesnt touch the internal memory at all, which is why having a high class speed sd card is important. It can be sluggish off a class 2. I did it to a class 6 and pulled a 1560 quadrant, it blazes.

So if you have a spouse that just likes their NookColor how it was out of the box or something, they can use it how they want. When you want to use it, power down, pop in the sd card, and boot up froyo. Obviously, this is portable since its all on the SD card you can add all your apps, customize how you like, and put it into any nook and it will look just like you left it. Very cool!

This can also save your ass in a big way if you temporarily disable your nook (this is why it can't be bricked). Lets say you royally eff up your eMMC or boot partition on the internal memory. Pop in this SD card, fix everything (which can be a hassle but can be done), power off and you can reboot a working NookColor.

Thought ya'll would like to know
Do you have to uncompress the unzipped .img file? I tried copying it to the SD card and rebooting the Nook but nothing happens.

To make it a bootable SD Card you have to burn (write) the .img file to the SD Card. You can't just copy it over. You will need a copy of Winimager to do this.

That must have been it. I have no idea when that happened. I should probably stop with the Guiness when I'm fiddling.

Anyone tried it?

I rooted my daughters which was old software. Is it similar?

Is there a thread on it here? I'm on phandroid app so if there is I'll search for it. I looked for a min but came up empty.

Sorry, I have no experience with it and haven't seen anything on it here, unless someone updated a sticky.

With my wife's NC, I used autonooter 3, then went for a Phiremod. My NC went straight to Phiremod, then to CM 7.03 (before Phiremod updated to 6.3). I'm not a reader so have no use for stock.

Yea this is for a lady at Delta cargo's son. Doesn't need to go crazy with it but want them to be able to utilize the market.

Does the partition of the SD card to store apps/access all of card work good?

Suggestions colchiro? I'm already gonna tell them to use Aldiko for reading (its my preferred reader app) but would like them to have access to B&N sore/app though. Honestly just want to use the quickest method possible and nothing to terribly complicated

If you mean repartitioning from stock 1.2, I've seen no complaints, but haven't needed it myself. There's a 2nd version that gives 2 gb data partition so halfway between stock 1.2 and stock 1.1 that might be good for people that read and want market apps.

I'm not a reader (don't have any reader installed) so sounds like you know more about that subject.

True, in the grand scheme of things though as long as the market is working then all is well in the world, lol. And i'm gonna use the method from post 7 here: You don't have to root the NC to run pure android 2.2
where disk image has 2.2 in it and you can use the rest of the sd card for whatever. Lady can get nook app if its a big deal (though aldiko is far superior)

If you're running Vista or Win7, try right-clicking on win32diskimage and "run as administrator".

NightAngel, I had the same problem, and it seems that it was due to using an internal SD reader. I bought an external reader for 8 bucks and all was well with the world. Do you have an internal or external reader?

Internal

After reading through the xda thread (hate trying to read threads there) several people were having the same issue as me. One person said they ignored the error and everything worked. So even though error stopped progress 20% into write and only 100mb of data(or so) on the card i went ahead and renamed the files and it worked perfectly! I tried for 3 hours to figure out why it wouldn't burn diskimage though and apparently that was all wasted effort
Updated with manualnooter was the best way to go IMO.

Like I said, try an external reader. Once I did that, things were pretty effortless.

Yea i thought of that but for one it essentially is the same thing, only difference is the way/speed data is transferred through the MB into hard drive (or the other way to sd card) AND I obviously didn't have one handy.

Though the weird part is like i explained above. Even though it failed at 18% percent(or whatever it was) it worked flawlessly. Oh well, who'd a thunk it?

I think the key word there is "essentially." I can't explain the difference, only that the external reader worked for me. I did read too quickly at first. Glad to hear that it worked out for you, despite the quirkiness.

I am getting no-where with this...
First try, I used the ROM from the OP (nookie-froyo-SDIMAGE_2GB-0.6.8.img.gz ). Nook booted normal, not 2.2.
Second try, I used nookie-froyo-0.6.8.SDCARD.2GB.custom.6 from this XDA thread (posted by Cabbie, post #7 this tread) - same thing, Nook booted normal.

My process -
download the .zip image file,
un-zip image,
use Winimage to burn the card (16mb class 2 SDHC)(card in an external reader)(I've never used winimage, maybe I messed this set up?),
Safely eject SD from PC,
turn off NookColor,
load card,
turn on NC, NC boots normal.

Where did I screw this up?

The op here needs to be updated, there is an image on xda that will load any nc rom zip onto the sdcard. I'm posting from my phone or I'd paste links. I'll probably get on the pc later and post some links.

Default Root my NC!

I've rooted my phone and Ipod touch by following the instructions found online but I'm having a hard time with the Nook cause there seems to be so many options and versions of this and that. Do you know anywhere that gives easy to follow step by step options on how to root (or just give access to market apps) the Nook Color? Could I just use this Nookie Froyo (NookColor: Nookie Froyo - nookDevs) will this give me access to market? and will it work on my version 1.2.0 NC?

Thanks in advance!

I mostly agree... and I will eventually... But I promised my wife I would keep it stock for a while. I was hoping this Nookie thing would let me play with android in the mean time...

the frustrating thing is - across several threads here and XDA, they just say "image this and boot the NC"... If this was complicated, I could deal with not getting it right... but screwing up a simple process bugs me...

Ok, so what does that mean? is this something other than "flashing the image"?

Slightly. The thread that explains this is linked in the manualnooter thread from xda that I referred to.

^lol

The image program doesn't matter but the problem i had (was busy beofre and couldn't answer) was that i kept getting an 'error' when trying to make
SD card cm7 (or whatever its called) flashable. I finally just ignored the error and renamed the the 2 files it says to and it worked perfectly....

I am not even getting it to work enough to get an error... My NC just ignores the card and boots normal.

I think I am just going to give up and do the manualnooder...

I'm having trouble getting this to work. I get a write error from Win32 Disk Imager, "Not enough space on disk." Any advice?

[EDIT]
Problem solved. It looks like Win32 Disk Imager and the built in SD reader on my laptop did not get along. I used an external SD reader, and it worked.

Fixed! Turns out that in WinImage, instead of just hitting "Write" I needed to do "Restore virtual hard disk image"

Got it to boot Nookie Froyo, Unrooted

Thanks Everyone!

I had this same problem. The internal reader would error every time. 8 bucks for an external reader, and I was rooted in no time.

I'm sorry that I cannot provide a link, but I have read several posts that load the Market as a separate step after one has the SD card created and running on the N/C.

I wish I could help more ... and hope that this helps now.

So I just found out about booting to Froyo from an SD while reading comments on engadget about the NC 1.4.1 update.

Since there hasn't been a post here since October, is this still the case? I would love to be able to use my wife's NC as a tablet. She says she is fine with it as long as when she turns it on it's "stock" for her.

I don't need HC or ICS, I just want to get an SD that is the most stable and has a working Market. This way I can have tablet capabilities until I buy my own tablet in the future.

CM7.1 stable is what you want. Whether you choose to buy an over-priced one (and kill a kitten in the process) or make your own, is your own choice. Here's our guide to a sdcard install. I'd recommend buying a 16gb or 32gb class 4 Sandisk card if you choose to do this.

I got to tell you. I read that whole thing and could barely make it out. My tech skills are disappoint. I'm the kinda guy who would rather throw someone who actually knows what they're doing some scratch to set it up for me.

It's one step at a time... not impossible. Best to have a friend, neighbor, IT person at work, do it (so you can have them update it later) than to buy a overpriced card.

Since CM7 is so much better than Nookie Froyo, do we need to unsticky this thread, let it sink to its rightful place among the others, and create a new, clean thread about CM7 on SD? Just a suggestion...

I haven't paid much attention to it. Good idea.
